Early Morning Fire Takes Home, 2 Pets In Bourbon County

A Bourbon County couple's home was destroyed by fire this morning.

Two pets were also killed in the blaze.

The fire happened on Harmon Drive in Paris at around 2:30 Sunday morning.

The homeowner tells LEX18 that the fire appeared to start in the front bedroom.

The homeowner's attempt to put the fire out failed, as a neighbor called the fire department.

The home is a total loss.

Neighbors credit the fire department's quick response time for preventing the fire from spreading to the adjacent homes.

A leftover cigarette is currently the suspected cause of the fire, says the Bourbon County Fire Marshal and lead investigator.

We'll have more on this fire Sunday at 6 on LEX18.
